Normally our rabbits weigh between 2-2.5kg live weight and 1-1.5kg carcass weight at 14 weeks. After feeding sprouting fodder the rabbits took only 12 weeks to reach this weight.
In addition when previously feeding pellets to the rabbits it would cost $760 to feed 50 does and 70 kittens for 3 weeks. We now feed 90 does and 250 kittens for the same price.
